Both the 'First overseas summer time university on a number of standards choice Making equipment, functions and software program' and the current quantity of readings might purely be realised with counsel and aid from many facets. we want to precise our gratitude to all those that have contributed to creating a hit of the 1st of a with a bit of luck lengthy sequence of summer time faculties during this box and to all those that have contribut. ed to the current quantity. firstly we're thankful for the monetary ability provided by means of an extended record of sponsors, crucial of that are pointed out at the copyright web page. subsequent, we're thankful to the individuals of the setting up committee, Anna Ostanello and Giovanni Zambruno. for the reason that this can be the 1st of what's going to develop into a chain of summer season faculties, the chairman of the setting up committee, Benedetto Matarazzo, will begin this quantity with a short account of the varsity held in Acireale. The programme committee consisted of Jean Fichefet, Anna Ostanello, Bernard Roy, Jaap Spronk (chairman) and Stanley Zionts. Their necessary contribu­ tion is gratefully stated, as is the contribution of the entire academics on the university. in fact, a college is not just made by way of its lecturers, yet simply as a lot by means of its scholars. the first objective of a faculty is to coach and to stimulate the students.

How to construct the function U? The second part of this paper is devoted to this approach.
